PINATA is a Chrome browser plug-in which detects when users are having pointing difficulties, notifies them, and offer to adapt their browsing experience.
Design; AI; Accessibility.
I set up a PHP server to handle storing users' pointing data and run them through a Weka classifier to identify pointing difficulty.
I designed three different in-browser notification designs with varying degrees of interruptibility and context.
